Marti Mikkelson and JR Ross discuss the week in politics in our "Capitol Notes" conversation.

Last week saw a war of words at the State Capitol, at least on Democratic Gov. Tony Evers' part. Evers apparently was still reeling from the Republican-led Senate's failure to confirm Brad Pfaff as state Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection Secretary. Evers reportedly told state workers that Republicans are "amoral and stupid" for essentially firing Pfaff. Then, Evers reportedly referred to Republicans as "bastards." He later backpedaled on that comment, saying he doesn't really think Republicans are bastards, but rather, he was invoking a well-known saying.  

In this week's Capitol Notes conversation, WUWM's Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of wispolitics.com what he thinks of the state of relations at the Capitol right now.
